Reno Contracting Reprocesses 60,000 Tons of Construction Waste

Reno Contracting declared that it has reprocessed over 60,000 tons of waste material from construction sites from the beginning of 2009 and saved nearly 72% of construction junk by redirecting them from reaching landfills.

The amount of waste material it saved from going to landfill can fill in three football grounds each with 100 feet depth.

Last year, the company  established its new business initiative Reno ESP (Efficient Sustainable Practices) to assist the owners of commercial buildings in improving the ecological and energy effectiveness of the old and new buildings, while reducing the operational costs of the buildings. Reno, while providing energy efficiency services to other companies also has incorporated energy conserving measures in its own company. Last year the jobsite trailer of the company has achieved LEED Certification for utilizing energy efficiency systems and recycled materials.

The 60,000 plus tons of recycled unused materials collected by Reno includes concrete, wood, asphalt, cardboard, metals and landscaping wastes. To assist the companies to achieve their LEED certification Reno segregates the wastes such as drywall, metal and wood from the mixed trash materials at onsite locations.
